    Better plan on getting the 128GB 6s / 6s Plus.

    Based on the sample 4K video they put on the 6s page, it's 381.6MB / min.

    That means you could (not talking into account the OS or other apps—this is just rough math) hold less than 42 minutes of 4k video on the 16GB model, 172 minutes on the 64GB, and 343 minutes on the 128GB.

    4K video sample from here:

    I downloaded some 4K videos from YouTube in the past and they are massive, only talking a 3, 4 minute video! That's what boggled me with the 16GB. Between larger photos, apps (new and old), taking slow motion video - which can be large in file size and now 4K, you'll run out of space within a week.

    If you plan to take 4K video, 64GB minimum is very necessary. Don't even consider 16GB.

    And the person who is concerned about space will get a higher capacity phone.
